Witness the world’s highest peaks on the Sandakphu Trek, Darjeeling

The Himalayas have held a surreal fascination for not just mountaineers but practically anyone anywhere in the world. One reason could be that it is home to the highest mountain in the world- Mount Everest.

What if you had the chance to see not just Mt. Everest but also the 3rd, 4th, and 5th highest peaks in the world (also a part of the Himalayas) on a fairly moderate trek that doesn’t require you to be fanatically fit and the altitude gain is no more than 12,000 feet?

The Sandakphu Trek promises such visuals and more and it’s in West Bengal, India.

The trek route can last between 3-7 days, depending on if you plan to walk all the way or take a ride on the Land Rovers designated on the route, and also the starting point of the trek.

The best time to trek is throughout the year with the exception of the monsoon season. Spring is ideal to spot wildflowers along the route whereas autumn and early winter are great to view the mountains across the clear skies.

If this trek fits right up your alley, TourGenie is planning fixed departures for this trek in October and November.

Dates: October 2nd, 9th, and 23rd; November 6th and 13th.

Priced at Rs 13,500 per person for 5 days 4 nights, the route starts from Maneybhanjang and ends at Rimbick Village. They are providing a discounted rate of Rs 12,900 for a group of 5 and above.
